"there's a notification LED in the top loudspeaker"
is it as shitty as the one in the Z1C? hiding the LED behind the speaker grille is an elegant solution in theory, but i think the visibility is terrible on the Z1C. brightness is really low so sometimes i can't see it at all when outside. and even when at home with only moderate ambient light, the viewing angle resulting from the indentation makes it pretty much impossible to see the light at a distance
mir, 22 May 2016Did you just compare one of the most elite makers of luxury cars to a phone? You obviously don... moreSony is the best luxury android phone with high quality and endurance, same goes for Rolls Royce among cars. Take it as simple as that, you might not trust me now, but I am sure you would when you chill with Xperia phone one day.

Fyi, just in case if you dont know, Throttles means "reducing clocks frequency" or "under clocks" (the opposite of overclocks in pc).
So dual heat pipes can not fully fix sd810 failure.
Sad...being a sony fans more 10 years. I would choose the xperia x over the redmi note3 even having same processor if the price are 25% more. But its 4x of the redmi note3 price! Apple, htc, sony please learn from samsung and huawei.

new HTC born. be frank , i never walk into sony shop anymore since the shape , lcd size , low spec high price , lousy lcd , low ringtone , small battery all never improve.
Anonymous, 22 May 2016Z5? lol. Sd 810 is a failure. Sony made it throttle too often to prevent overheat. Yes, SD 810 was a failure and big rushed from Snapdragon. However, have you ever heard of an innovation called the dual heat pipe to reduced the overheating of the Z5? All the other companies ditch the SD 810 because they can't solve the problem like Sony did. In the end, Sony is more than practical than other companies.

But they have better camera than Samsung

Just do some research 'Sony Xperia Z2 gaps + self-cracking glass' on Google and you will learn why I never bought any newer Sony-phones. I had the k610i back in the day and that also needed ducktape to keep in one piece after one year of basic usage. Didn't even drop the phone once. And yes, the quality has probably gotten a bit better over the years... That remains to be seen.
Tann Hauser, 21 May 2016Not entirely much to justify paying so much more...
Z5 is a better cost for benefit Z5?
lol. Sd 810 is a failure. Sony made it throttle too often to prevent overheat.

best cameras ... moreLol you must be one of those ill informed keyboard warrior??? Since when is the Z1 5 years old. The Z1 was released on September 2013 and every year Sony will launch 2 Xperia Z device starting with the Z in 2013. Plus Z1 is not updatable to Android 6.
